NewsCentral24x7 Impact: J&K Governor Scraps Order Which Made It Mandatory For Govt Employees To Buy Reliance Insurance, Calls It ‘Full Of Frauds’
He alleged that even the tenders were opened on holiday to suit Anil Ambani's company.
Governor Satya Pal Malik on Wednesday, scrapped the Jammu and Kashmir Group Medical Insurance Policy Order for government employees, saying “it was full of frauds”.
On September 20, the Governor’s administration had rolled out the scheme, making it compulsory for the employees to buy health insurance from Reliance General Health Insurance Company Ltd. instead of the state-owned insurance group Life Insurance Company (LIC).
Malik alleged that the entire process was tainted and even the tenders were opened on holiday to suit Anil Ambani’s company, reported DailyExcelsior. He said, ““The amount was changed to suit the company. The tender was opened on holiday. I went to root of the case to find out which officers were involved…how much amount was involved. More employees were added to the policy to raise the amount,” reported National Herald.
“I have ordered termination of the Jammu and Kashmir Group Medical Insurance Policy of Government employees after going into roots of the case, which turned out to be `full of frauds.’ Formal orders to this effect will be issued in the next two days,” said Malik.
The Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre has been under attack for its links with industrialists. Several allegations of crony-capitalism and corruptions have been raised against the government, including Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defence being favoured in the ‘Rafale Scam’. Reports have also suggested that the BJP government bent rules to award Institute of Eminence tag to Mukesh Ambani-owned Jio Institute.
